The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services has screwed up the removal of children from the FLDS families. And that agency, and the state, is now damaged by the excess they used in this case.
This ought to call into question whether these agencies, even with their good intentions, are good for us. Parents have a right to raise their children the way they want. Abuse claims should be carefully examined.
And Glenn has it right: At least in their concern for the safety of the children, they didn't burn the place down.
